1970, 20th Century Fox, 109 min, USA, Dir: Russ Meyer

Dolly Reed, Marcia McBroom and the incredibly foxy Cynthia Meyers journey from Hicksville to Hollywood hoping to make it big with their all-girl rock trio, The Carrie Nations. They fall prey to the evils of the music industry as well as to their own inflated ambitions. A pop culture sex fest (co-written by film critic Roger Ebert). With additional tunes from The Strawberry Alarm Clock.

1966, RM Films, 83 min, USA, Dir: Russ Meyer

The ultimate Russ Meyer paean to big breasts, aggressive females and ultra-violence. A trio of hard-drinking, car-racing, do-anything-for-kicks strippers, led by the robustly exotic Tura Satana, terrorize everyone in sight, including poor waif Susan Bernard and twisted rich cripple Stuart Lancaster. The voluptuous villainesses are finally consumed by greed, lust and hate in an orgy of bloodthirsty self-destruction. Achingly funny and exhilarating from start to slam-bang finish in one of the true masterpieces of 1960s pop cinema. With an amazing score by unsung greats Paul Sawtell and Bert Shefter. Also starring Lori Williams and Haji.
